Which is better: a thermo pot or a kettle? What is more economical and profitable?


An elec­tric ket­tle allows you to quick­ly boil water, but a ther­mopot keeps it con­stant­ly hot. Let’s con­duct a com­par­a­tive analy­sis to find out which is bet­ter — a ther­mopot or a ket­tle, and which one to give pref­er­ence to in the kitchen.

Kettle with electric heating

Today, a vari­ety of mod­els of this tech­nique are avail­able in most fam­i­lies. The elec­tric ket­tle firm­ly replaced its pre­de­ces­sor, which, although more eco­nom­i­cal due to its use on a gas stove, boiled water for a very long time. Although such a quick assis­tant in the kitchen also has its pos­i­tive and neg­a­tive sides.


  • rapid boil­ing;
  • com­pact size;
  • a large assort­ment range;
  • afford­able price;
  • styl­ish look.


  • small vol­ume;
  • high elec­tric­i­ty con­sump­tion at the time of boil­ing;
  • often fails or leaks.

REDMOND SkyKet­tle M170S

Model REDMOND SkyKettle M170S

An excel­lent mod­el for those who do not want to go to the ket­tle just to press the but­ton to boil. Man­age­ment takes place remote­ly using a spe­cial appli­ca­tion. It can wake up its own­er in the morn­ing, as well as heat the water to one of five select­ed tem­per­a­tures. Keeps the select­ed tem­per­a­ture up to 12 hours. Styl­ish design suit­able for almost any inte­ri­or.

BOSCH TWK 8SL1 Soli­taire

Model Bosch TWK 8SL1

Appear­ance is the first thing that dis­tin­guish­es this mod­el from oth­ers. It also has an over­heat pro­tec­tion func­tion, a latch that locks when the lid is closed. It starts work­ing only if it is closed. The rub­ber­ized han­dle does not slip in the hand, the mat­te fin­ish of met­al parts does not leave marks on the sur­face.

Tefal Vitesses Dia­mond

Model Tefal Vitesses Diamond

This mod­el has a hid­den heat­ing ele­ment in the body, due to which scale does not form inside the ket­tle. Has a tem­per­a­ture con­troller. Can be mount­ed on a stand in any posi­tion. Made of high qual­i­ty odor­less plas­tic.

Vitek VT-1102

Model Vitek VT-1102

The advan­tage of the mod­el is a glass jug in which the boil­ing process is per­fect­ly vis­i­ble. The glass does not come into con­tact with plas­tic parts, which keeps the water from for­eign odors (see also how to get rid of the smell of plas­tic in the ket­tle). When you press the but­ton at the bot­tom of the body, the water in the ket­tle remains hot.

The body of the teapot is made of ceram­ics. Sweet and pot-bel­lied, he will appeal to lovers of antiq­ui­ty. Envi­ron­men­tal friend­li­ness, “cozy” design and lack of smells allowed ceram­ic teapots to quick­ly occu­py their niche in the mar­ket. A rather sig­nif­i­cant dis­ad­van­tage is their fragili­ty.


The device of this device resem­bles a ther­mos and a ket­tle at the same time. He can boil water and then keep it hot with a flask, like in a ther­mos. The max­i­mum water tem­per­a­ture in this device will be 95–100 degrees. The main advan­tage of the device is that it keeps water hot for a long time. It is believed that it is even more use­ful for brew­ing tea than steep boil­ing water from a ket­tle that has just boiled.


  • keeps water hot all the time;
  • capac­i­ty (from 3 to 8 liters);
  • low­er pow­er con­sump­tion;
  • the pos­si­bil­i­ty of heat­ing water by a cer­tain time (depend­ing on the mod­el);
  • long ser­vice life;
  • con­ve­nient oper­a­tion (no need to lift the device, just bring the cup to the spout and press the cor­re­spond­ing but­ton).


  • big sizes;
  • high cost (com­pared to a ket­tle);
  • long boil time.

Model SUPRA TPS-3240

An excel­lent vol­ume for a ther­mopot is 8 liters. It can heat both two con­tain­ers, and each sep­a­rate­ly, reg­u­lates the tem­per­a­ture of water heat­ing in 5 modes. The max­i­mum pow­er con­sump­tion of elec­tric­i­ty is 1200 watts. The screen allows you to dis­play the heat­ing time, the desired tem­per­a­ture and oth­er nec­es­sary infor­ma­tion. Does not turn on with­out water in the tanks and is pro­tect­ed from over­heat­ing. It has two ways to fill the cup: by press­ing the rim on a spe­cial valve next to the ther­mopot spout and by select­ing the desired but­ton on the con­trol pan­el.

Pana­son­ic NC-EH40PWTW

Model Panasonic NC-EH40PWTW

The vol­ume of the device is 4 liters, tem­per­a­ture con­trol for 4 modes, built-in self-clean­ing sys­tem. The built-in block­er of work of the device with­out water. In the mode of main­tain­ing the tem­per­a­ture of boiled water, it con­sumes only 25 W, the total pow­er is 700 W.

Bosch THD 2021/2023

Model BOSCH THD 2021/2023

It belongs to the cat­e­go­ry of “smart” tech­nol­o­gy — it deter­mines the amount of water poured into the tank and spends exact­ly as much elec­tric­i­ty as is nec­es­sary to boil it and keep it hot. May vary por­tion size. Noti­fies the own­er when the fil­ter needs to be replaced. The most sim­pli­fied inter­face has only 2 but­tons. Vol­ume 2 liters, pow­er at the moment of boil­ing 1600 watts.


Model VITEK VT-1188 GY

The vol­ume of the device is 4 liters, there is a fill­ing indi­ca­tor. There is a lid lock and con­ve­nient oper­a­tion using but­tons. The max­i­mum pow­er is 750 W, in the mode of keep­ing the tem­per­a­ture only 35–45 W.



It has a vol­ume of 3.5 liters, a lock­able water fill­ing but­ton and a sim­ple con­trol pan­el. The flask is made of heat-resis­tant glass, the pos­si­bil­i­ty of rota­tion by 360 degrees is pro­vid­ed. Hot water can be poured in two ways, the re-boil­ing mode and the indi­ca­tion of the oper­at­ing mode are con­ve­nient.

What is more profitable

Choos­ing what is bet­ter to buy for a fam­i­ly, a ket­tle or a ther­mopot, we will ana­lyze the main nuances in the oper­a­tion of both devices:

  1. Elec­tric­i­ty con­sump­tion.
  2. Kitchen size.
  3. The need for boil­ing water.

On the first point, we will ana­lyze the pow­er of the elec­tric­i­ty con­sumed by each of the devices. At the moment of boil­ing, the ket­tle will need 700 watts to bring the water to a tem­per­a­ture of 100 degrees. After the water boils in the ther­mopot, it keeps it hot at 95–90 degrees for 1.5 hours, and then the tem­per­a­ture drops slight­ly to 80–70 degrees and the device starts to con­sume only 25–45 watts in stand­by mode.

Giv­en that the ther­mopot is plugged into the net­work through­out the day or when fam­i­ly mem­bers are at home, it needs to be boiled only once and the rest of the time the device will keep the water hot due to the flask, like in a ther­mos, in its device. There­fore, the elec­tric­i­ty con­sump­tion of a ther­mopot will be slight­ly more eco­nom­i­cal than that of a ket­tle. In a fam­i­ly where they often drink tea, it will be a more prof­itable pur­chase.

Regard­ing the sec­ond point, it should be not­ed that the ther­mopot has very large dimen­sions com­pared to its oppo­nent and looks rather bulky. If your kitchen is small, then the ther­mopot will take up too much space on it.

And third­ly, it is believed that a ther­mos-based device will be more use­ful for those who often need hot water and it is incon­ve­nient to con­stant­ly put the ket­tle on and then cool the water to the required tem­per­a­ture. This applies more to young moth­ers who pre­pare mix­tures for baby food, and to tea lovers who want to brew dif­fer­ent vari­eties at dif­fer­ent tem­per­a­tures. Also, a ther­mo pot is suit­able for those who like to have tea, who often put the ket­tle on to boil — for them it will also be more eco­nom­i­cal. In all oth­er cas­es, you can get by with a ket­tle.

When com­par­ing the boil­ing speed, we can say that for a ther­mopot it can reach up to half an hour. It all depends on the vol­ume and pow­er of the device. Some mod­els have the func­tion of boil­ing at a cer­tain time, but not all have it.

There­fore, before buy­ing a par­tic­u­lar device, study its capa­bil­i­ties, and decide what will be more prefer­able for you, based on the above infor­ma­tion.
